So the game has a 30hz cap when vsync is on?

if you have vsync frames set to 2 it does cap it at 30 instead of 60. Also im wondering like the guy above what max gpu buffered frames does, is this the same thing as triple buffering in nvidia control panel ?

Im running 2 gtx 680s classifieds in sli, with a 2600k running at 4.7hgz at a resolution of 2560x1440.

I run the farcry3_dx11.exe and my game runs like crap. About 30-40fps on ultra settings with 4xaa. Gpu usage is going nuts at 99%.

Now, when I run the normal farcry3.exe, my game runs fine at 60fps. The in-game menu says its running in DX11 but my nvidia inspector hud says dx9. But again, the in game menus say dx11 and give me all graphics options like msaa.

Why is the performance so bad for me using the farcry3_dx11.exe?

And am I really getting dx11 when I run the normal farcry3.exe ?

When you guys are talking about switching from dx9 to dx11, are you referring to the in-game settings or switching with the .exes?

you gotta run from the dx11 exe my stupid butt was running from the dx9 one. I realized something was wrong when I turned up to 8x msaa and saw no dip in fps LOL!. good thing I had only played like 2 hrs at that point. Its dumb they still give dx11 options in dx9 mode. The game is beautiful even in dx9 lol. Its gorgeous in dx11

Ah OK thanks.

Now, should the performance really be that bad on my system? Even with AA off the game still runs at 30 to 40fps.

2x 680's and you are getting worse fps than me w/ 1x 670 SLI must be screwed up for this game. Don't they have to release SLI profiles for each game? I don't know that much about sli....

Well I tested the game out with SLI disabled. Using only 1 gpu the game runs at 30fps with graphic settings on Optimal and AA off.

Using 2 gpus in SLI, I get 45-50 fps with Optimal graphics settings and AA off. Even using High or Very high settings, the performance is the same.


What a joke this is. I'd run dx9 mode but it looks hideous... jaggies everywhere and AA doesnt work on it.

Is there any chance there's something wrong here (maybe something with a workaround) or is this just another piss poor optimized game?


My system again: 2 x 680 classified SLI with a 2600k at 4.7ghz hyperthreading on, running at 2560x1440 res.
